    after 1500 miles found something wrong with my Pure Fix

    So after 1500 miles on rough michigan roads and absolutely no problems with my Pure fix I had a flat tire. I thought it would be a mounting problem or something, when I took it apart I can see that tube protecting strip is actually too thin and there is no way to get it so it will cover all the spoke holes in the rim. They need to put a thicker one in. I changed it to a wider one myself. What a piece of junk lol Anyway I have had 1500 miles of Pure Fun and intend to have another 1500 of problem free riding.

    Clearly you win. The base model Pure Fix is above reproach and made of only the finest materials and is the obvious choice for everyone and nobody should ever spend a penny more because howeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeee is happy with his bike and THERE IS NOTHING BETTER OUT THERE AND YOU'RE DUMB IF YOU EXPECT MORE FROM LIFE.

    Got it.

    It took you 1500 miles to find something wrong with your Pure Fix?

    Lol onfixiate.

    Umm, my purefix got dual flat tires pretty quickly. As far as love or hate for this bike... If you've never had a bike before and are looking for a cheap bike to start out on I say it's great. I've been in a few accidents including one with a car and mine still works. However, I think it's only good fas a first bike because anything else is an upgrade.
